What else can you expect from NPR?
This podcast, released 2-4 times a month, is a collection of literature-related stories from NPR shows. The shows are always excellent in content and selection. If you are interested in books or reading even remotely, this is a must listen. I only wish they would release new podcasts more on the 4 times a month cycle than twice.
NPR is my favorite station. Every morning on the way to work, you will find me listening to it :)
all the book news you need
A compilation of the latest book-related segments from NPR programs such as All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Fresh Air. This podcast is a great way to hear NPR's author interviews, book reviews, and publishing news without having to seek out the relevant content from the different shows.
